Storm Wardens also seem to have a bit of a thing for serving in the Deathwatch so that fits with the other marines you are doing as well. All their fluff is in the Deathwatch RPG books although a lot of it you can find in Lexi or 40kwiki.

Nice GL conversion.

Fresh from the conversion contest, my colonel..

Seems to be. Nice work on the Colonel, which officer mini is he based off, the one with the combi flamer? Also what have you used for the paper? Never seen it before?

Really like what you have done with eth heavy weapons teams and the Valhallans in general.

I would second the vote for storm wardens - they have a nice colour scheme and quite hilarious/awesome fluff.

Thanks guys!

The base model is the Valhallan special character, Chenkov.

The paper I cut out of a latex glove, which was textured on the inside. I'm really happy of how it came out.

Ah right that's the fella, regardless of the base, very nice job on him. You used a latex glove? How did you get it to hold it's shape? Will it take paint?

Thanks Jack. I'm going to add some more equipment around the base, a sword in scabbard, a map case, maybe a backpack. Any other thoughts on what? Might give him a mug on the table.

The glove thing was pretty easy. Just cut a flat strip out, rolled it up and put a dab of superglue where I wanted the roll to end, that holds the shape. Same for the sheet over it. Cut out a square, glued to table and then glued it to the sides. Simple. I've covered them in PVA so they should take paint fine.

So apart from the HQ (and 2 sentinels), the Valhallans are done, so here are some celebratory shots.

105 models including approximately 30 conversions.

Those heavy weapons teams look ace, I really need to get hold of some ruins to do the same. Re stuff on the commanders base: A map case would look great, cap off lying on one of the tables maybe? Personally I would keep it very regal and not practical at all so I wouldn't go with a back pack, maybe a small roman type standard?

I think I'm with you on the pack. Sadly, his hat is well and truly on his head.

Them Valhallans are excellent. Some very nice conversions there. Maybe you could put a bottle of Amasec on the table to stop his map from rolling up.

For the blue space marines, the Dark Hunters sound good.
